Casa Mosaica Newsletters
Several guests have kindly asked about the situation in Spain, so I thought I would include a little about the lockdown in - Gaucín, in this, my Spring Newsletter. I am in touch with guests who have booked holidays this year but please don’t - hesitate to contact me directly any time if you have any enquiries about your bookings.
After much re-decorating during February and March this year, I can finally show you the results of the new colours I’ve used around the swimming pool courtyard...a much stronger “Moroccan Red” for the walls, new teak sun beds for the pool terraces and chairs for the gardens, a fresh lavender border and new planting in the pots on the terrace. It was nerve racking choosing a strong paint colour for such a large area, especially when you are not on the spot when the painting begins. Thank goodness for the brilliant Sibari, my local painter who did a great job and I think this colour sets off the Olympian Spiral mosaic in a good way. I hope you like it?
By the first week in March the wisteria was in full bloom in the garden at Casa Mosaica and attracting plenty of the big blue Carpenter bees and although I am not sure exactly when they first arrived, the house martins were already back, busily tidying up their nests at the front of the house on the 20th February...Spring comes early in Andalusia. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I have not entirely missed the jasmine officinale, the first of the jasmines as I adore the powerful scent and have just seen it called “The Poet’s Jasmine” on a website which seems to me a great name as I can imagine it might well inspire poetry. We had fabulously good weather in February and early March as you can see from the bluest of skies in these photos.
